Since 1994 James D’Angelo, author of The Healing Power of the Human Voice and Seed Sounds for Tuning the Chakras, has been leading his Soundspirit workshops and courses in the UK and the USA, empowering people to use their voices therapeutically for self-transformation. Considered a leading authority in the field of sound healing, he has developed his own unique approach to toning and re-tuning the chakra system in which both external and internal vocal sounds are intoned. He provides his participants with a variety of rituals for attaining true sound health including natural sound rituals, Taoist sounds for the organs, Biosonic tuning forks and discovering your fundamental tone. Welcome to the sound healing world of James D’Angelo.
The vibrations of the human voice applied consciously as a therapeutic instrument have the resonating power to stimulate, release and balance the fine healing energies that create harmony and wholeness of body, mind and spirit.
At every level from the cellular to the surrounding bio-energetic field of the body we are a great network of frequency vibrations which fluctuate, become weakened and literally go out of tune. If this disharmony becomes serious, disease can be the result. Through the focused, resonant use of the voice we have the capacity to alter our vibrations and our state of consciousness, be well-tuned and have true sound health. This process of toning and chanting is combined with simple movements, similar to Tai Chi and Chi Kung, which help to free the voice and direct the sound to specific energy centers and organs. The sounds are both externalized and internalized leading to periods of meditation where the deepest healing takes place. In effect this is the practice of Nada Yoga, union through inner sound, where consciousness expands and deep peace descends.
In the workshops all the vibrations are given more potency through the ritualising of the sound and the group energy. Channels are kept open and no one has to produce vocal sound on their own. The quality of your voice is not the issue, only the deep intention behind it. No previous experience is necessary.
voice is a light. If the light becomes dim, it has not gone out; it
is there. It is the same with the voice. If it does not shine, it only
means that it has been cultivated and you must cultivate it again and
it will shine once more.”
